Vanessa Wright BA (Hons), PGCE, MBACP Senior Accredited, Supervisor, Relate reg
When life is hard it can help to talk in confidence to someone supportive and non-judgemental, someone who is independent and outside the situation, and who can offer a different perspective. Counselling can help to make a way forward seem easier, a way that you may not have thought about before.
I know it can be very hard deciding to see a counsellor, but exploring together what is troubling you, in a warm and secure space, can make all the difference.
I am a Senior Accredited Member of the BACP. I use different approaches to suit each person's needs, including CBT. I have particular experience working with anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties. We can talk about this together when we first meet.
Usually, our initial contract will run for six weeks, and then we will review the counselling process together, and decide about further sessions. Normally we will meet on a weekly basis at a regular time.
I welcome adults, young people, children and couples to a comfortable private room in East Molesey, and also in Surbiton.
